hey - you look like your mother!
See below for a call for submissions for the awesome Worn Magazine!
“Everything I know about fashion, I learned from my mother.”
Almost every one of us got our first lessons in style from our mothers. Whether by practical advice or in setting an example, how (and with whom) we grow up has a huge influence on the evolution of our aesthetic tastes. Hell, even the complete absence of fashion effects us somehow.
Do you have a story about how your mother influenced your sense of style? Do you have sage advice the rest of us need to hear? Have you carried your mother’s sense of style with you all your life?
We think you do - and we think a whole bunch of people are going to want to hear about it.
Worn Fashion Journal is sending out a call for submissions.
We are putting together a ‘zine all about how moms shape our view of fashion and how their influence and advice follows us all our lives.
Pitch us your best stories and get your mom the recognition she deserves.
We are looking mainly for essay/anecdotal stories, 800 - 1000 words. You may include pictures, but it’s not required. We will consider other formats for your ideas - just let us know what you’d like to do and we’ll let you know if we can swing it.
Send us your pitches and ideas by: February 10, 2008
All final drafts by: March 1, 2008
Unfortunately, as an independent magazine, Worn can’t pay writers for selected submissions - but we will make sure you get a free copy of the ‘zine so your mom won’t think you made it all up.
Don’t procrastinate. Just think what your mother would say…
